    How low do you want. Lowest you're going to go is not enough clearance for speed bumps.

    Check out AP's range. I heard FK's are good for stance

    If you want to go as low as possible try air suspension.

    You can usually get coilovers a little lower by removing the helper springs.

    Im going to be getting coilovers myself soon will be going for either Weitec or KW (Wietecs are made by KW so great quality)
    I have heard that the shock absorbers in FK's are a common failure.

    One of the FK kits will be the lowest option.

    Let me know if you need any info or prices.

    Air ride is out of the question as the cheapest kit i can make up will be around the £1700 mark.

    Im looking to spend about £500 give or take a bit.

    Just looking for maximum lows with relative comfort.

    Damien do the FK coilovers come with any warranty on them?

    Thanks Tom

    I've got FK's on my Avant and they sit pretty low, low enough that I have to raise them this weekend. The arch is currently sat about 35mm above the actual rim of my tucked 18's. For cheap coilies I'm pretty happy with how they ride as well.

    Any FK's will go low as you can remove the helper spring. Not many other brands run a helper to remove!
